SBS 2003 and Server 2008 shared folder privileges?
Posted on 2010-11-24
We currently have 3 different sites which are interlinked via a VPN. The main site is running on SBS 2003, and the other 2 are running on server 2008. All users have access to 3 shared folders through the network, but these are all top level folders. Meaning that all users can view everything on each shared folder. Some folders such as the admin folder is set up for a few users and denies access to the rest.
My question is, what is the best practice to set these folders up to make sure that certain users only can view what they require? Should I set up a separate shared folder for each are? I.e, accounts, sales, quotations etc? Create user groups and just add the higher privileged users there? Is it bad the way these folders are currently set up?
Any help would be appreciated.
